Keep America Fishing- EPA ban on lead in fishing tackle
« on: September 14, 2010, 06:16:27 AM »

On August 23, 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was petitioned by the Center for Biological Diversity and others to ban lead from ammunition and fishing tackle, including sinkers, jigs, weighted fly lines and components containing lead, such as brass and ballast in lures, spinners, stick baits and others fishing products.

On August 27, the EPA denied the petition regarding ammunition, but let stand the petition to ban lead in fishing tackle and has opened a short period for taking public comment.

Such a ban would cause prices of fishing products to skyrocket. Alternative metals can cost from 6 to 15 times more than lead, and most do not perform as well. For many, fishing would no longer be the affordable sport it is now.

Please join us and Keep America Fishing in opposing this ban by submitting your comments to the EPA by no later than September 15, 2010. You can easily do so by Clicking Here.

The "click here" link will take you to a simple format to make your feelings know about a lead ban. There is even a prepared text that you can send if you do not want to send one of your own. It is a fast and easy way to assure your opinion is heard.  Many segments of the fishing tackle industry are very concerned about this potential ban. We can assure you thart a lead ban would eliminate a large part of the fishing tackle industry and a lot of fishing.
